The symbol for Leo is the Lion.
When the Sun is in Leo, prepare for a month of true joy. People turn to activities and interests they really love. They use their energy to support their egos. They want to be noticed; they need to show off!!
Leo energy is flamboyant, extroverted, attention-grabbing and proud. It supports impressive appearances, romantic endeavors, leisure activities, speculation, creative projects, relationships with children and lovers, and anything that gets you notice and applause.
In Astrology, Leo is ruled by The Sun.
Up-front and on-stage
Actions are dramatic, self-confident and dignified. Attitudes are self-centered, self-promoting and self-aware. Notice all the emphasis on "self." There's no getting around it. Leo energy is all about me, ME, ME!!
Leo people live as if they are always in the spotlight, as if all eyes are on them. (In their minds, they always are.) They have an unmistakable style about them in everything from the way they dress to the way they talk to the way they walk into a room.
They are commanding, remarkable people who genuinely believe they deserve every speck of appreciation that comes their way. They are impossible to overlook ... as in "impossible to ignore" -- and if you have any sense -- or sense of fun -- at all, you will not try.
Leo's color is yellow.
Leo souls are some of life's most interesting decorations -- whether you're an admiring member of the audience ... or standing on the sidelines, shaking your head in resigned amusement as you watch them put on a show. If one (or more) of them graces your life, you know it -- sometimes a little too much! (smile)
Every year when The Sun is in Leo, we are all invited to live life as one of these amazing creatures ... for a little while ... and find out what it's like. It can be eye-opening. It can be life-changing. It is always quite a gift. I don't envy many things ... but I envy Leos their amazing belief in themselves, their glorious self-regard!!
Under stress with the Sun in Leo, people (everyone ... yes, you, too) become self-important, self-absorbed, pompous and vain. Their actions are pretentious, arrogant, showy ... even theatrical and exaggerated. Intentions are self-serving and obvious. But once again, you have to watch it all. You just can't help yourself.
